The first Salt Middle East conference, brought to you by renowned salt industry experts, Roskill, took place in Dubai November 2017.
Taking place at the five-star Marriott Hotel Al Jaddaf, Dubai hotel in the heart of Dubai’s commercial centre from November 14-15th, the Salt 2017 Middle East conference will bring together salt industry executives from around the world to share latest trends and expertise with a panel of international speakers and delegates. While the content will be global, it will also draw particularly on regional Middle East perspectives and provide an excellent forum for local companies to network with their global counter-parts.
The event will offer participants from the salt industry many opportunities for networking and business. If your business is salt, you should take advantage of this opportunity to network with our targeted audience.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available. By sponsoring the event you will be able to raise your profile and visibility within the international salt industry. For more information contact us.
Whether as a speaker, delegate, table top exhibitor or sponsor, we are sure that you will find Salt 2017 Middle East to be a worthwhile and enjoyable event. We look forward to meeting you in Dubai!
